there has to be a way. here's the bottom line. in 2011, the united states took in about $1.1 trillion in income taxes. these are individual income taxes. but look at the bottom number below it. i mean, this makes my jaws drop. total tax break, credits, exclusions, your mortgage interest deductions, state and local taxes. more money than we took in. okay, whatever you think about specific deduction, this screen is everything you need to know about how our tax system is really broken. so ending the state and local deduction alone would be $862.2 billion according to the cbo. the mortgage interest deduction, $214.6 billion. now, those are exactly the deductions mitt romney said he'd cut at a closed door fund-raiser back in april. a reporter at the event wrote quote mitt romney said i'm going to probably eliminate for high income people the second home mortgage deduction, romney said. adding he would also eliminate for state income and property taxes as well. he made it clear it's for higher income people he wants to get rid of some of these deductions and mitt romney's defenders are sayi

violence in the united states. rudy, it is always good to talk to you. and, you know, this comes at a moment when we have heard that al qaeda is on the run. and what we see now is groups sympathetic to al qaeda, linked to al qaeda or not on the run but frankly more powerful than the government in places like libya. are these -- should we take this threat of attack seriously? >> absolutely, i think we should take these attacks seriously, because although we're making headway in the afpak region, we have not made any headway in the north africa region. we have new governments in libya and tunisia and egypt. and frankly, some governments are sympathetic more into the cause or the lane of the extremist elements. so when they pose this threat, you also have a collapsed lip libya that has been a conduit for arms pushing across the region. now you have weapons and people who are sympathetic, and causes a big concern for me, at least. >> and what are the risks that there could be attacks outside that region? when people in america try to say, well, is this going to be something that spreads,
